Something caused a registry corruption...and a good one. It took all your restore points, too. Tough one for sure.

Go to system restore and set a fresh restore point and name it "Initial Recovery". That will be a good point to restore to if you have serious problems. Choose a more recent one if you just need to roll back the registry after a minor issue.

I'm impressed with the way you stuck with this one...well done!

He is my hero also and I have not been here long. Posted Image

I followed the thread all the way and learned so much. I also admired LCollins2 fortitude in hanging in there. Posted Image
